KOCOSPORTS (“KS”) is committed to protecting the privacy of our website users (“Users”) and KOCOSPORTS® members (“Members”). To that end, we offer this statement to inform our Users and Members of how we define, gather and utilize personally identifiable information. KS shall take reasonable steps to protect Member and User privacy consistent with the guidelines set forth in this policy and the law. KOCOSPORTS defines personally identifiable information as information that includes any combination of the following: a persons full name, street address, telephone number, date of birth, email address and/or the genre of products or components purchased by a person or company.
KOCOSPORTS collects personally identifiable information from Users when voluntarily submitted by a User, for example when a User submits news, participates in any special offers, purchases products online, or registers on KOCOSPORTS or any other company site for an e-newsletter or other individualized services. We require that a User be 16 years of age or older to submit personally identifiable information. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from unauthorized or unlicensed manufacturers and/or distributors. We screen users who wish to provide personal information to prevent unauthorized users from abusing such information. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from an unauthorized user, we will deny and delete such information from our records. We also do not knowingly distribute such information to third parties. We do not knowingly allow unauthorized users to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information. Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from unauthorized users, we do not condition the participation in online activities of a unauthorized user on providing personally identifiable information.
KOCOSPORTS, its affiliates and subdivisions (if permitted by KS) may share and use personally identifiable information collected online to develop and improve the products, benefits and services we or selected business partners offer to our Members or Users. KOCOSPORTS, its affiliates and subdivisions (if permitted by KS) also may share and use certain User and Member data in the ordinary course of their business, for example, for account maintenance and debt collection. Certain information collected in connection with product purchases may be provided to third parties for use in transaction authorization, fraud scoring and credit card fraud prevention modelling.
Except as described above, KOCOSPORTS will not communicate with Users or Members by email or provide User or Member email addresses to business partners, unless the User or Member has provided express permission to KOCOSPORTS. Users and Members also have the chance to opt out of other opportunities to receive promotional communications, materials and products from (1) KOCOSPORTS, its affiliates and KS subdivisions (if permitted by KS) or (2) their business partners. With the exception of users exercising the opt out opportunity, KOCOSPORTS, its affiliates and subdivisions (if permitted by KS) on occasion may disclose to their business partners certain data such as names and addresses and the genre of products purchased by a person or company, for the exclusive use of marketing goods and services directly to Users and Members. Under no circumstances will KOCOSPORTS disclose title-specific information to anyone except as allowed by law.
